  • In early 2016, the judges assigned to the Business Court Subdivision of the Civil Division of the Ninth Judicial Circuit Court of Florida ("BCP 1.2"), along with the chief judge of the Ninth Judicial Circuit, Frederick Lauten, requested that a Business Court Commission (the "Commission") be formed to review and revise the existing Business Court Procedures ("BCP 1.1"). The Commission included practitioners from a diverse set of backgrounds and a diverse set of experiences. Among the Commission members were large and small firm practitioners, practitioners who typically represent plaintiffs, and practitioners who typically represent defendants.
